This past year, I have become much more interested in basketball.  I suspect this is because of the media, or, all of the hype around the Miami Heat and The Big Three. As a result of following ESPN and the NBA channel, I have become astutely aware of team dynamics, momentum, flagrant fouls and playing even when you may be in pain. My message as I write this blog is to call attention to readers that these situations are not limited to basketball, tennis, football or other sports.  Rather it happens every day in the business...

Here are some pictures of the Girls Going Places event that took place on April 15th at the University of North Florida. The high school girls ranged from ages 15-18. While the focus was girls who dreamed of opening their own businesses, there were other girls included as well who were not quite sure what they wanted to do. The most exciting areas for me included my working with them to establish a budget once they achieved their dream job. They were provided a kit that included typical expenses and salaries for their respective careers. They...
